    IL - Tracy Cusick, 32, murdered, Ottawa, 16 Jan 2006 *Arrest*

    http://www.mywebtimes.com/news/local...97a45b109.html

    A crew from “Crime Watch Daily,” a nationally syndicated program, was in Ottawa on Sunday and Monday recording interviews with an Ottawa detective, state’s attorney, former coroner, the victim’s sister and a Times reporter about the 10-year-old death of 32-year-old Tracy Lynn Cusick.

    Cusick was found drowned in her home’s toilet on Jan. 16, 2006. Her husband, Kenneth Cusick, an Ottawa firefighter, discovered her body.
    There was an inquest held in 2011:

    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...second-autopsy

    More than five years after an Ottawa, Ill., woman in a troubled marriage was found by her firefighter husband drowned in a toilet, her death has been ruled a homicide due in part to evidence provided by the wedding ring she was buried with...

    The pathologist who did a second autopsy found that Cusick's injuries — including an abrasion to the bottom of her chin, crushing injuries to the cartilage of her throat and an abrasion on her forehead that matched the contours of her gold diamond wedding ring — indicated foul play...

    On the night before she died, Tracy called Gibbons about 10 p.m., upset after fighting with her husband, Gibbons said. Tracy said she'd had a couple of Bloody Marys and was going to go to bed.

    "She was sad; she was upset," Gibbons said. "She said, 'My heart hurts.'"

    Thursday, Kenneth M. Cusick, 49, of Ottawa and his lawyer asked for additional time to prepare for Cusick’s murder trial.

    Cusick is accused of drowning wife Tracy Lynn in a toilet Jan. 17, 2006, in their Ottawa home.

    Judge Cynthia M. Raccuglia granted the continuance and set a July 13 status hearing, at which time she may issue a new trial setting.

    Kenneth Cusick was in court again Thursday for a status hearing. Because of the unique nature of the case, a status hearing was set for September with no actual trial date being put on record yet. Cusick's lawyer wants more time to check out medical records.

    Still no new trial dates in toilet bowl drowning case

    http://www.newstrib.com/free/still-n...06f122f72.html

    Cusick’s trial has been repeatedly postponed while the defense looks for experts on what is shaping up to be a technical trial, based on the design and mechanical properties of a flush toilet.

    Thursday, Judge Cynthia M. Raccuglia agreed to a Feb. 1 status hearing so the defense can continue its research.
